Who we are
Stahl Gerlafingen is the largest producer of recycled steel in Switzerland and can look back on a great and long tradition at the Gerlafingen site. Reinforcing and sectional steel supplies not only the building construction and civil engineering sectors, but also industry with high-quality steel products. As the largest recycling company in Switzerland, we make an important contribution to the realisation of the future-oriented circular economy in our country. With our investments in efficient production processes, we contribute to low-CO2 steel production in Switzerland.
Our products can be found in buildings, bridges, tunnels, lorries and in a wide range of machinery and equipment in the MEM industries. With around 540 employees, we produce over 700,000 tonnes of steel products every year in uninterrupted 4-shift operation, most of which are used or further processed in Switzerland and neighbouring countries.
High quality, flexibility, and readiness to deliver are our success factors. With 10 to 15 apprentices and trainees, we are committed to the training and further education of young people. In terms of industrial policy, we are committed to attractive framework conditions regarding energy, transport, spatial planning, and the environment. Swiss steel production has a future and is systemically relevant for an active and environmentally friendly circular economy for the secondary raw material scrap in Switzerland and neighbouring countries.
